Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo Playing 35th Anniversary Tour
Time sure dies fly -- 2014 sees Pat Benatar and guitarist husband Neil Giraldo out on the road for a major North American tour in support of Benatar's 35th anniversary. The pair became an item while recording Benatar's 1979 debut album, In The Heart Of The Night, which featured such instant classics as "Heartbreaker" and Benatar's cover of John Cougar's "I Need A Lover." The couple, who married in 1982, now have two grown daughters and will play a handful of dates with old friend Rick Springfield. Giraldo played lead guitar on Springfield's 1981 chart-topper, "Jessie's Girl."
 
Pat Benatar admitted to us that her first meeting with Neil Giraldo was truly love at first sight: "I wanted to marry him the first second I saw him. I just didn’t know what to do about it; I was married and he had a girlfriend and we were trying to work that out (laughs). I called my very best friend the evening of the day that I met him and I said, 'I met the father of my children' and she said, 'Are you insane?' -- 'cause she knew I was getting divorced — and she was like, 'What are you doing?' and I’m like, 'I can’t help it!' Y’know? It was pretty much instantaneous."
